that this was important to us. what i've said to prime minister netanyahu is that given so far the talks are moving forward in a constructive way, it makes sense to extend that moratorium so long as the takes are moving in a constructive way. because ultimately the way to solve these problems is for the two sides to agree, what's it going to be, israel? what's it going to be, the state of palestine? and if you can get that agreement, then you can start constructing anything that the people of of israel see fit. now, i think the policies of prime minister netanyahu is very different. there has been a coalition that says, we don't want to continue this. so i've said, you've got to show the israeli public that you are serious and constructive in these talks so that the politics for prime minister netanyahu, if he were going to extend the settlement moratorium, would be a little bit easier. and, you know, one of the goals i think that i've set for myself and for my team is to make sure that president habas and prime minister netanyahu start thinking about, how can they help the other succeed as opposed

, these are the principals that have guided us over the last 19 months. and these are the principals that form the basis of the additional economic proposals that i offered this week. because even though the economy is growing again and we've added more than 750,000 private sector jobs this year, the whohole the recession left is huge and progress has been painfully slow. millions of americans are still looking for work. millions of families are struggling to pay their bills or the mortgage. so, these proposals are meant to both accelerate job growth in the short term and strengthen the economy in the long run. these proposals include a more generous permanent extension of the tax credit that goes to companies for all the research and innovation that they do here in america. and i propose that all american businesses should be allowed to write off all the investments they do in 2011. this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment and will encourage large corporations to get off the sidelines and start putting their prof toots wots to work i economy. we also announced a six-year plan
's begin with christiane amanpour. tell us what happened. >> reporter: well, diane, i just spent the last several hours with imam feisal abdul rauf of the islamic center here in manhattan. i was interviewing him when pastor jones made that statement from florida. and, he shook his head in bewilderment and gave a statement to me in which he said, "i am glad that pastor jones has decided not to burn any korans. however, i have not spoken with pastor jones or imam musri. i am surprised by their announcement. we are not going to toy with our religion or any other. nor are we here to barter." and the imam went on to tell me that this whole issue is so sensitive because he really has to take care of sensitivities here in the united states and abroad. >> well, it was incredible you were there with the imam for this whole roller coaster. stand by.xd we want to hear about your interview today. but we do want to go for the latest strange event in this strange story to matt gutman, in gainesville, florida, where pastor jones and his small group of followers first gained attention. matt? >> reporter:

along with others. on friday at 11:00, he doesn't speak to the people but to the base and us. >> he's trying to drive the conversation into the weekend. we are inside the two-minute warning. he is an extraordinary communicator, but as president, people said what happened to the guy who was out on the campaign trail. >> right. it brings it back to something donna said earlier, she says he thinks he has the juice to bring people out. i saw him say do this one tore me, come out like you do for me in 2008. he does the same thing in virginia and republicans won those. this is different. if he can frame it as a big, big election for him and his agenda. it's a tough go. >> you have to define the stakes for his voters to get out and vote. that's something he hasn't done. >> remember, congress returns next week and the other thing the president wants to do is to help set the agenda for the closing weeks of this session of congress. >> youee now the great pageantry in the east room of the white house. you see correspondents taking their seats. president of the united states on a friday mornin
the fire chief haynes there, he explained to us there was an explosion in the area, that units responded. he said it looked like a broken gas line. they don't know that for sure. 53 homes he said have been is a vees veerl damaged. 120 have been fire damaged. one confirmed fatality at this stage. seven people have been injured. they won't know until a little later, they'll have to wait until friday afternoon for a full search to see if there are casualties. let's listen to what the mayor said a little earlier. >> terrible terrible tragedy has fallen on our city this afternoon. our main concern making sure our citizens are safe. we're trying to do that right now, outreach. we have red croshere. we're interviewing as many people as we can from the affected area. >> all right, listening there to san bruno mayor jim ruane. i want to go to dan simon now who is there at the scene, and dan, you've been following this. it's extraordinary when you look at these aerial shots of what's happening on the ground that there's been only one confirmed death. >> yeah, i mean, look this happened just after

for us tonight. thank you. in afghanistan, the taliban has been using this controversy to win new recruits. today, cbs news obtained taliban leaflets that urged villagers to join them in seeking revenge. mandy clark is in kabul tonight. >> reporter: the leaflet said that america is the biggest enemy of islam and called on muslims to take revenge for the burning of the koran. the leaflets have been handwritten and dropped in paktia province. cancer they've been distributed taliban on motor bikes to small villages. most villagers are illiterate, so the leaflets would have been left with imams to read out in mosques and spread the word that way. the taliban has capitalized on the controversy at the holiest time of the year for muslims, a time when the mosques will be packed with followers. mandy clark, cbs news, kabul. >> smith: we want to bring in juan zarate. good evening. >> good evening, harry. >> smith: how much damage has already been done by this? >> well, harry, some damage has already been done. we've seen protests in muslim capitals around the world. we just heard about the
, whether they actually believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, including it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis. both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in a domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. howard? >> well, sitting in the pre
in there. he was looking for us. once he discovered we were gone, i guess he went the other way and i thought i'd lost him. but fortunately i seen him pop up on the back of the street on the other side, we came up two opposite streets, so -- >> let's make the point, everybody in your home got out safely, and that's very good news. tell me about this house, though. this was your parents' house. i know that you grew up there and moved back in after your mom passed away. >> yes. >> had just remodelled it? >> right. >> what was it like to see it in flames? >> heart-wrenching. it really was. it was hard to watch. but the main thing is my intermediate family got out. the other things can be rebuilt and other things can be, you know, replaced, but you can't replace family members. >> where are you going to go from here, bob? where are you going to stay? >> oh, i got wonderful friends, wonderful friends that have offered homes for me to stay in, cars to drive. a friend of mine, bert, offered me a house to stay in and gave me a truck if i need it. we're staying with some wonderful friends, dav
